Botanic Garage

February 17, 2018 § Leave a comment


Anyone who lives in Glasgow’s West-End would know this Art Deco landmark. The Botanic Garage. It was completed around 1911 and around the late 1990s it finally closed it’s doors to cars for good.
I was lucky to be one of few to see inside the building. It was like a time capsule, untouched for almost two decades. I have had these images sitting on my hard-drive for almost 7 years, and now deciding to show them.

Exposure Exhibition

February 9, 2018 § Leave a comment


I am looking forward to being part of, and displaying an exhibition of my “Strong Spirits” Parkour Photography.

Exposure 11Feb2017 Glasgow

EXPOSURE: Exploring Glasgow’s Underground Through a Lens

11th February 2018 // 5pm-10pm
The Old Hairdressers, 27 Renfield Lane, Glasgow.

Non ticket just an Entry fee: £1
All Proceeds will be donated to charity.

A pop-up, one-day exhibition which focuses on local talented photographers showing unique and innovative perspectives of the city of Glasgow through their lenses. We argue that “Underground Makes Glasgow” – that is the celebration of the different, the unseen, along with varying other aspects of the city which are not commonly witnessed.

Update:

The night was a great success with an attendance of 335.

Scott Stanger Photo shoot

October 7, 2017 § 2 Comments


I had the pleasure in doing a photo shoot with Scott Stanger, whom travelled all the way from New York to visit Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh. During his visit to Glasgow we got together for a photo shoot at some of Glasgow’s unique backdrop’s.

Below are just some of the photos from our shoot.

A big thank you to Yemi King for being my amazing lighting assistant .

Scott’s amazing sense of classic/vintage style (see his instagram) allow me to experiment in different picture styles. Such as colour, black and white and Sepia. I love the fact Scott Stanger suits them all.
